These Halloween ghosts are so simple to make! You'll simply poke a styrofoam ball through a tall garden fence stake os spray painted dowel. 

Then, cover it all with some white fabric or cheesecloth! Lightweight fabric is best because when the wind blows it will give the ghosts the illusion that they are dancing!

Form them in a circle and tie the ends of the fabric together. Secure the fabric on the styrofoam with security pins and hot glue.

Vintage Halloween signs are easy to make! We created this halloween sign from an old china hutch door. 

But, you could use an older kitchen cabinet door or recreate the frame from wood and just had hinges. 

Lots of thrift stores or your local Habitat for Humanity stores usually carry second hand furniture or repurposed doors inexpensively and it's a great place to find treasures you can repurpose into Halloween decor!

The hinges make it really easy to hang from a front window using S hooks and this vintage signage is always a hit on Halloween! You can see how we created this Halloween Sign out of repurposed materials here.
